Hootie Jones chooses Alabama

Posted: Updated:
MONROE, La. -

Neville 5-star safety Laurence "Hootie" Jones had such a tough decision ahead of him that he postponed his announcement twice.  But on Monday morning, Jones made his choice between Alabama and LSU.

Hootie said he had no idea who he was going to choose until about 20 minutes before the decision and kept it very tight-lipped, not even telling his mom, before he put on the visor.  Hootie Jones chose to take his talents to Alabama, costing LSU their 3rd recruit from Monroe, Louisiana.

He said the Crimson Tide recruited him the hardest, and it didn't hurt that Bama was his mother's choice for her son as well.  And so now, the Monroe big 3 Jones, West Monroe lineman Cameron Robinson and Ouachita receiver Cameron Sims will all head to the University of Alabama together.
